    The curved screen is the only turn off for me for S8. I got the G6.

    I ended up w/ the G6 instead of the Galaxy for many of the day to day reasons Dave talks about in the video. The game changer for me was value. I found an unlocked G6 for US$500 at the same time I really needed a new phone due to damage on my old device. For me that increased price gap was the thing...and after a bit of customization it runs almost the same as my previous Nexus device.

    Thank you for calling out the curved screen on the S8! I've always shared your feeling on that: It certainly LOOKS cool, but there's no practical reason for it to be there. It actually DISTORTS content! I've considered the S7 Edge & the S8 many times, but the curved screen always puts me off. I'm happy to hear I'm not the only person who feels this way.

  • Clifton Photographer

    Currently Aug 2017 you can get the G6 for $450 new on eBay.
    Also you didn't mention all the bloatware that Samsung comes with that can't be removed and how slow their phones over time (like iPhones). I prefer a phone that lets me decide what to install on it. Barebones, and I'll pick the programs that are best for me.

    There is a class-action lawsuit targeting two of LG's flagship devices, the G4 and V10. The suit (PDF) complained of a well-known bootloop issue that either bricked the devices or slowed them to a snail's pace—all to the backdrop of warranties or LG failing to fix the problem. After we published the story, many Android fans were wondering why other LG phones that suffered the same issues were not included in the original lawsuit.

    Wait no longer: the Southern California federal lawsuit has been amended to now include the Nexus 5X, and the LG G5 and LG V20. The updated lawsuit covers every high-profile LG phone from 2015 and 2016. Mind you i really liked my V10 in 9 months bootlooped bricked I'll have to wait for another manufacturer to have a quad dac amplified headphone that can hit the road jack i wont buy lg no more even the repair/replace they cant get right extended 2 year warranty i've been there done that.

    Great review Dave! This is my first time watching your videos and you just got yourself a sub. Anyway, about the curved displays on phones now, I HATE them because I can't put a proper tempered glass screen protector on (I'm using the S7 right now). Yes there are ones for the S8 but at what price? You know if you did your homework. I ordered a LG G6 from Hongkong which has the Quad DAC (comes with headphones I believe) and it has 64gb of onboard storage. It is missing the wireless charging that the NA version has but I don't care about that. This will be my first LG phone so I hope this won't be a disappointment. Keep up the good work, I look forward to your future videos man, cheers!

    LG phones are junk and have been for some time now. Their phones are ridiculously under-spec'd. Their batteries have always been terrible and underpowered. You'd be lucky to last a full day on a LG V10 without charging 2-3 times whereas Samsung Note 7 could actually withstand use (because that's why some of us get smartphones) and still have a little charge left at the end of the day. I've had an LG phone before this one, the LG G Vista and it was equally as bad. I though actually getting the flagship phone next to the G series of phones would have yielded better results. Nope. Just as bad as before and as bad as they are more than likely going to stay. I would rather pay more money for a much reliable brand that obviously has more experience and knowledge in the phone market than cheaper, less experienced alternate. Thanks for that Samsung! :)

    Yes, some people could argue the exploding battery issue that came up. I personally went through the battery recall and I think Verizon did a downright horrible job coordinating with Samsung. However, Samsung made it right for everyone involved in the end. Although, if you are still bent on it, think back to the time that it occurred with Apple. All things considered, they are really awesome phones if you are going Android.

    LG should stick to TV's and appliances because it seems to be all they are good at doing. At least those having a LG 55" TV and a microwave have been ridiculously reliable and have performed well. I'm not saying the whole brand is bad if that hasn't been obvious, just that their smartphones suck.

    it's pretty sad, because LG finally got it right, it is an amazing phone, like literally the best phone they ever made, but people ignore it, and part of the blame is from LG, because despite being a great phone, it has like 0 advertising, I haven't seen a single LG G6 commercial ANYWHERE, not in the streets, not tv, not internet, so people don't know it.

    Lol. Since the G6 has the older SD821 than the S8's SD835. The LG G6 would definitely aged faster and slower than the S8. Just wait for 2+ years and we'll see. It is actually important to those people who change their phone every 2 to 3 years.

  • Christian White
    Christian White 23 days ago

    I definitely prefer the LG G6 over the Samsung Galaxy S8, because it has a built-in FM radio so I don't need to get a standalone pocket FM radio to listen to the radio without using mobile data. Also I like the wide angle lens camera and I think LG are generally more stylish than Samsung. I'm not saying Samsung are not good, I just personally prefer LG. I like other Samsung products, I'm just not a huge fan of Samsung phones. I would even choose the LG G3 over the Samsung Galaxy S8.

    Very good review! Appreciate honest reviews and not the jumping-on-the-bandwagon ones most reviewers always seem to do. I have the LG G6 and my son has the S8. As you stated, both are great, flagship phones, but I prefer the LG G6 for what it does for me. My only negative critique would be the lack of the quad-DAC in the U.S. version, but since I don't really use my phone as a music device, it's not that big an issue. Again, great review!

    My biggest problem with all Android Flagships is their price. Also no-one markets nearly as well as Apple or Samsung.

    We all know Apple is expensive and Samsung is too, but when inferior phones are priced similarly.. well the Market Share explains it.

    FYI US = ~45% Apple Dominated, ~30% Samsung Dominated with other Android companies trailing FAR behind. LG is third at 10%.

    IMHO, its too late for LG, Moto, and HTC. I wouldn't be surprised if they closed down their development team for new flagship phones.

    I kinda have to agree with you on this one, Dave. Samsung products are beautiful & elegant ones, no doubt, but in terms of their usability and enjoyment, I much prefer LG smartphones. For me, it all comes down to the software experience and the cameras. My V20 is fantastic, as it's not only a big phone, which I love, but it also carries the dual camera setup and software experience I like. I'm also not sold on curved displays and glass unibody designes. They're pretty, but phones that have them feel way too fragile for my liking.

    LG is better than Samsung... Cheaper and more sleek in my opinion. I've already had a galaxy s4, s6, G2 and a G4 and I can say myself that LG seems to have more features.
